Report on the Resources of the Country Traversed by the Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio Railroad, and the Paris, Georgetown and Frankfort Railroad, in the States of Virginia and Kentucky free pdf Excerpt from Report on the Resources of the Country Traversed by the Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio Railroad, and the Paris, Georgetown and Frankfort Railroad, in the States of Virginia and Kentucky A map of the existing railways in the United States exhibits a singular want of these roads in the central portion of the Alleghany Mountain Chain. A section composed of parts of Virginia, Western Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee, about as large as the state of Pennsylvania, is not traversed by a single railway. It might be supposed from this absence of modern ways that this region was either a desert or that its surface was so rugged that a road could not be made through it without very great expense. In fact this region is the most fertile and salubrious portion of the Appalachian Mountain system- it abounds in mineral resources and its surface offers less serious obstacles to the passage of railways than any other part of that great mountain system. The fact that this great region, full of natural resources, has remained essentially undeveloped is due to the peculiar effects of slavery. Although of fertile soil and abounding in mineral wealth, it was not fitted for large plantations or tillage by slave labor- it therefore, as far as occupied at all, fell to the lot of the poorer and less enterprising small farmers of the South. In the old days of the south the only resources that could be made of use was those of the soil, and even those were limited to those soils that would produce the few plantation products. The great amounts of coal, iron, salt, timber, etc., that abound in this district were without interest in that stage of its history. After the war came a period of political uncertainty that deterred capitalists from venturing into this field. Before the process of readjustment of relations was complete the country fell into the monetary crisis of 1873 which still further delayed the commercial re-absorption of the South into the Union.
